New Software Tools Combine VR and 3D Model Printing

EchoPixel announced the new True 3D print support software tools for users of their US FDA-Approved True 3D Viewer software. The True 3D Viewer converts existing Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computed Tomography (CT) and other 3D-modality Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) images into Virtual Reality (VR) objects. Clinicians can use the VR viewer to move, dissect, turn and open the 3D images of the patient anatomy. More...
